|Work and Pay - You Support the Combine
Will Work for Food
There are numerous ways for Combine members to work in support of
the Combine. For those interested in finding some of this work,
visit the Questions
for Admin forum in the Message Center. In your post, list
all of your available skills (graphics, types of programming,
technical writing, etc.), your online availability, and multiple
ways to get in contact with you (e-mail address and ICQ numbers are
the most effective overall). One of the Admin or Assistant Admins
will reply to your thread when a job that matches your skills is
found. If you wish payment it will be in CPs.

solely responsible for managing the finances of the Combine, and are
in no way tied to the bank accounts of any one member of the sim. It
is also possible to transfer to an Australian bank account, but it
is not a Combine-only account.

through the above means will only be used to meet the financial
needs of the Combine. Each donation you make not only benefits you
directly, but helps to improve the Combine for every player now and
in the future!
